A monologue play by Alan Engelsman
“Bittersweet Lemons” is a South African story about the creative arts.
The two main characters are a creative duo – an artist and a writer.
It takes place at the beginning of the new millennium in a country town called Riebeek West, in the Swartland district of the Western Cape.
“Bittersweet Lemons” is written as a monologue play. Probably best narrated by an English speaking Afrikaaner in much the same vein as the stories that are told and retold of the writings of the late Herman Charles Bosman.
An actor of the ilk of Ian Roberts would, without doubt, do this story proud.
